This just reminds me of Super Sad True Love Story. I can see a world where you walk into a bar and are told of everyone else there on tinder. You're told that the woman over there likes hiking but as you approach you get a red flag notification that says she has cats and you hate cats. Everyone sits in silence, their phones not telling them that there's a good match here. Another woman walks in and a quartet of near silent buzzes rung out from different corners of the bar. Each man pulls out their phones, answering compatibility questions in a quick attempt to improve their match scores before one seems to hit jackpot. The two silently leave again, knowing they are comparable but not quite knowing how to start a conversation.
